DUI Lawyer Kankakee


Any Illinois DUI arrest — even for a first offense — can be a miserable experience. You must post your bond and pay towing and storage fees before retrieving your vehicle. Your license will be suspended for six months to three years regardless of the outcome of the DUI. If you are found guilty, court-ordered treatment and fines will run into the thousands of dollars. It also may result in the revocation of your driving privileges or license suspension. Subsequent offenses can be charged as felonies, which are punishable by prison.
